Decided to shoot exclusively with my 50mm lens in Frisco on Friday to make it interesting. Being limited to one focal length forces you to move around to compose an image and be more creative. It was quite liberating. If I had to pick only one prime lens it would be the 50. Consider it to be the most versatile lens. Here are a few frames from a gloomy day on the south beach. Always an adventure on Hatteras Island.
Eastern Surf Magazine featured this image from my recent trip to the Caribbean as the newest White Balance photo, a slideshow feature that highlights the challenges of nailing the photo. It’s a signature carve by Virginia Beach’s Phil Goold in beautiful backlit conditions. Head over to the site for the recipe for the image. http://www.easternsurf.
Here’s a lineup from yesterday framed by an old wooden fishing pier. It’s been such a fun run of surf. Hope it continues into the warmer Spring months.
Just purchased a 5D Mark 3. Really excited about it. Here’s a couple random photos taken while testing it out last couple days. Going to be a stellar wedding and portrait camera.
It could get pretty ugly next week as we are forecasted to get rocked by a nor’easter Wed-Fri. The sand dunes were no match for the surf on Wednesday morning in Rodanthe and Buxton and it wasn’t a significant storm event…can’t imagine what it will look like with a 15-20 foot swell and 40-50 mph north winds. There is an old wives tale that if you hear thunder in the winter months, you will see snow within 10 days…
A lovely curve, a couple birds, and a little mood. Boom.
